Yes

To life …. in all its dancing glory 🙂

To being all that one can be!

To changing & evolving for the better

To creating hope & possibilities

To exploring the seemingly impossible

To envisioning the capabilities

For life is best lived in expression

Of all that one can be!

So yes to life and living!

Life & Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds…

Some people, tell it like it is without mincing anything

And the truth in all its profound simplicity tugs your heartstrings…

Beautiful words
Written by
Sophia Loren (Actress)…

_” When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone….. When I was sure of Losing, I won……. When I needed People the most, they Left me……. When I learnt to dry my Tears, I found a shoulder to Cry on…… When I mastered the Skill of Hating, Someone started Loving me from the core of the Heart…… And, while waiting for Light for Hours when I fell asleep, the Sun came out….. That’s LIFE!! No matter what you Plan, you never know what Life has Planned for you…… Success introduces you to the World……. But Failure introduces the World to you……. ……Always be Happy!! Often when we lose Hope and think this is the end… God smiles from above and says, “Relax Sweetheart; It’s just a Bend, not the End..!”_

Worthy reminder indeed!

Worth taking a moment to be inspired by the truth of life and living in her words.

Here is another recent share about her …
Sophia Loren is returning to cinema after an 11-year absence. Loren, 86 stars in upcoming Netflix drama The Life Ahead, which is directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti.
At age 83, Oscar winner, Sophia Loren remains the epitome of la Dolce Vita and glamour. Although recognized as one of the most beautiful woman in the world, the Italian Icon is equivalently known as the woman who dared to challenge traditional conventions of beauty in the 1950’s.

Every life has a unique story

Every living has a unique pathway

Loving kindness

No amounts of words we simply hear can help heal the world …

As much as even just a pair of helping hands from a loving heart in harmony.

Bridge Of Gratitude

In Practice of Gratitude…

Every day, in every way, the awareness builds upon you, as you become more and more grateful for all that is, was and will be.

In every move towards Gratefulness you are creating a bridge of Gratitude to channel your emotions when they go astray.

Let your Gratitude speak beyond words, in actions that matter.

Let the walls of uncertainty, in doubts and lack of faith trust and belief, shift away in the winds of positive transformation.

Let your heart and mind be on one page.

In the aligned thoughts, let your breath be free and easy.

Let your life expressions be empathic & compassionate.

Let your lifes moments be like the tender breeze, easing in the flow.

Let every Gratitude you sense, become building rocks on the bridge of GRATITUDE.

An Illusory Life

I wonder…


Where is the beginning


Of illusion in this illusory world?

In the many facets of life and living

Blending hues and tones

In Connection beyond compare

And yet unsure when asked

Where is the blend & breakpoint


In this ephemeral existence?


We are vulnerable beings


In this so called reality


Trying to understand

This illusory life


To the best of our abilities


To be all we can be!

Yet sublime is the point of saturation


Like the subtlety  of twilight zones


We are left wondering the why, when,what, who & how…

Of the ascent of light and the descents


Like how the morning breaks in.


Showering upon us the light of a new dawn.


Dawn to dusk,dusk to dawn


Creating the Circles of being


Life happens and we goes on…

Keeping the wonder alive!

You are…

You are

All that you believe

All that you want to be

All that you choose to be

All your thoughts and deeds.

All your purpose and passion

All your deepest intentions

Enmeshed in the interconnects.

Of your life and living

As much as in the ebb and flow

Of the river of time.

You are

So much more….

Taking all of you!

Find yourself!

How involved are you in life?

In your passion?

In your engagement?

In your purpose?

In your lifes moments?

What is it that makes you go on

Taking all of you

Into whatever you do?

Perhaps…

You have an answer within

You are already on your path!

Creating anything worth having

Can take all of you

To be involved to be engaged

With a purpose that drives you…

Beyond yourself!

And you find yourself!

For the love of books

A book bound or otherwise

Is a treasure to an ardent reader

Who knows the emotions sensed,

In the company of a good book

Of times, well spent in the joy of reflections.

Reading is a beautiful voyage of discovery… of new learning and associations in assimilation.

Books, that transport us back and forth in time in a moment.

Books, that beckon us to a world of imagination.

Books, that create the magic of words

Books, that speak of truths and illusions

Books, that contain stories of life & living

Have you a favorite book that comes to mind immediately?

Nature’s Wisdom

Wisdom is in the Wind

In the breeze so cool

Wisdom gently rests

Buzzing like the bee

And blows off again…

Singing the song of freedom

Hear it whistling through the rustling leaves…

Showing the vulnerability

Of the moment, now and then.

Wisdom of water is legendary

In its flow is the secret of letting go

Of peace and forgiveness

Of ease and acceptance.

Water is flexible and agile

To adapt itself along the way

Yet strong enough to persevere

And smoothen the stones

Into pebbles in the flow.

To be able to imbibe the profound

Wisdom of the wind & water

Is to know the wisdom of the flow

In knowing that you are not in the flow

But you are the flow!

What is the Spirit of Christmas

Spirit of Christmas is the glow of warmth enveloping us all.
No matter how the year has been
No matter how life challenges us all
The spirit of Christmas has power
To change the perspective
Of what truly matters for one & all.

There is joy of seeing in hope
There is abundance in goodwill
There is cheer of smiles and laughter
There is most of all a thanksgiving.

With an attitude of gratitude
For all that is in this now.
Spirit of Christmas is alive & kicking
In the heart of the humankind
Kindling kindness & spreading smiles.

Tree talks

I am always fascinated by nature, especially trees … every tree speaks to us and conveys much beyond its beauty there is much to understand from its shape texture and form.

I find its lessons, often very poignant yet alluring and very inspiring as well.

If you love nature and trees may be you will like this …

Here is an interesting link I came across your birth tree

Looks like my birth tree is closer to the Rowan trees which are known to be the Trees of life 🌳 & the Ash Trees symbolic of spiritual strength as much as longevity and endurance.

Fascinating indeed to learn about the Celtic symbolic representation & personality interpretation of trees.

Happy Festivities

Happy Diwali to all here.
Sharing a few musings from my mother.



Tamaso ma Jyothirgamaya.

On this Diwali let us
Illuminate our hearts.
Ignorance n impediments
Vanish in that brilliance.

Let Faith, prayer, compassion
And humility fill the place
While false beliefs, prejudices
Hatred & anger
Dissolve without a trace.

Past year has taught us
Many lessons.
Many have learnt
The real values our lives need.


A disciplined lifestyle
With resilience will take us far.
The core values our ancestors had
Are not mere lessons in vain.
They are real essence of health
With gratitude, embracing all.

Time to rectify our deeds
Done in the quest to excel.
Mother Nature knows well
How to balance & dwell.
Let’s co-exist without harming,
Valuing all lives, be it in any form.

Let this Festival of Lights
Bring harmony & happiness.
Together we will protect
This precious divine gift
Undoing all our wrongs
Restoring what truly belongs.

A Very Happy Deepawali
To all of you,
Be safe and healthy.
Stay blessed ever.

As we celebrate this beautiful festival of lights lets all take some time to connect with the cosmic lights and feel its blessed presence within us all 🙂

On Allowance



The ability to discern and allow

Has a great significance

On your state of being

You are what you think and consume.

Ultimately you are entrusted

With this power of choice.

You are your own decision maker

So choose to allow yourself to evolve.

Think well and be expansive

As much as inclusive

For it steers and transforms your ways

Choose thoughts of peace & harmony.


Allow yourself to live life lovingly

Your will your way of life

Your life, your choice of living

Let love and peace show the pathway.

Step into your harmonious self



Nature of harmony is healing

Soothing sounds of the gentle waves

Ease the inner recesses of the mind

Greenery growing in synchrony

Inspite of the abandon of wilderness

Calms the body and mind

Refreshing smell of the first rain

Is truly invigorating to the spirit

All of nature when in balance

Is a dance of Harmony

Align to this harmony

Sense the joy of the interconnection.

Step into your harmonious self.
